We northeasters are excitedly getting ready for the arrival of Brimfield next week: the biggest antique show in New England that happens twice a year. Brimfield attracts sellers and buyers from all over–everyone from the Ralph Lauren’s corporate store decorators to Design*Sponge. Joe & I went last year with friends and left with only a few new things–we were totally overwhelmed! This year we’ve sat down, thought it through, and are going with list in hand: we need new shelving for the market, cool signage of all sorts, anything that can be converted into planters….actually my favorite part is the food because I love fair food, and I love excuses to eat through medleys of flavors.

The lovely image above is of the treasures our friend Birgit found at the fair last year.
